Welcome to Victor Bates Art

I'm Victor Bates, a Surrey-based artist.

I paint people, pets, buildings and flowers in a variety of mediums including watercolour and oil.

I love painting, and am a firm believer in the joy a portrait of a loved one, pet, or building of special significance can bring. They make unusual and memorable birthday, wedding or anniversary gifts.

I work mainly from photographs, but also from life where I can, and welcome commissions. 

I believe that original art should be affordable, and you will find my prices competitive.

Please visit my portfolio for examples of affordable pet portraits and portraits of people, buildings and flowers.
